Fred on the Damn Mess We're in.

I caterwaul about our hideous predicament on this blog all the time. Indeed, if anybody wonders why I am so unexpectedly enthusiastic about Trump, it's because I see him as the first Presidential possibility in a long time who just might start to get us out of our predicament. For the last few decades, the Democrats have promised to make the predicament worse as fast as possible, while the Republicans, at their best, have promised only to slow it down a bit, maybe, plus tax cuts for their pals. Maybe Reagan was a little better than that, but only a little. And at worst, of course Republicans have promised to screw things up just as bad as Democrats would, only maybe with a little more dignity. Maybe.

If you don't agree with me that we're in bad shape and getting worse fast, it's because you're too young to know any better, or because you're numb, having slowly gotten used to the collapse and it looks like normality to you. Something to meditate on while you consider: Obama is in Cuba right now, promising God knows what to the Cuban government. Note that he was not welcomed by the government leader when he landed. I don't care any more than you do how much Obama is dissed as a person, but when he's acting as US representative abroad, it more than annoys me that communist scumbags dis him. And that it's okay with him.

But when it comes to describing the mess we're in, nobody can beat Fred Reed. This is from his website, Fred on Everything [link]:

Betting on Gray Sludge: What Fun


How stable is the United States?

Things do not look good. The country is disintegrating. The borders are open, against the will of much of the population. Our universities are in sharp decline, the students a rebellious unschooled rabble portending a peasant future. The economy gutters and standards of living fall. Jobs are few and becoming fewer. Racial animosity is high and rising, with blacks out of control and looting at will.

We have that least American of Presidents, a marginally competent Afro-Indonesian confection of Moslem background who doesn’t like whites, has little in common with most of the country and is now a virtual dictator reshaping the country as he chooses. The Talking-Headocracy supports this. The decline will not stop.

Can this last?

The foregoing disasters are forced upon the many who hate it by a corrupt government of self-interested hacks, Northeastern in flavor, intent on outlawing Christianity and controlling the population by ever-tightening surveillance and police powers.

The national anger increases palpably: Islamophobes versus Islamophiles, gun owners versus gun controllers, sexual curiosities versus the traditionally moral, lesbian feminists against men and normal women. Viscerality is high. The contending sides hate each other m more than they care about the issues that provide pretexts.
Strong stuff, eh? Read the rest here:
